New ROBOCOP Poster Shows off Star Joel Kinnaman in His Shiny New Suit

     September 12, 2013


This new poster from director José Padilha’s RoboCop borrows a line from the 1987 original, but with one important difference.  That difference is likely a stand-in for the changes from the ultra-violent and satirical Paul Verhoeven film to the rebooted property that must earn its keep and prove to audiences it’s a worthwhile standalone film.  The first trailer was rather divisive, but I’ll wait to see the film itself before making any solid judgments.  These first official images, however, are quite nice in any event.

Hit the jump to check out the full poster.  Also starring Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel and Jackie Earle Haley, RoboCop opens February 7, 2014.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the original line delivered by Peter Weller in the original film, we’ve provided it for you below:

  • WTF Guy

    One word, Netflix. Only if I’m not busy watching grass grow or paint dry.

      Just stay out of…trouble.

  • Kevin

    I like his silver costume better. Black has been done way too much recently.

    • Joe

      Silver gives it a more robotic look. Black looks a bit like the some of the Tron: Legacy costumes.

      • JBug

        Yea, he kinda looks like Tron.

  • Leo Atrox

    Yeah! I’m so excited. We got the totally awesome and not-in-any-way-inferior remake of Total Recall, and now this! This is way better than films using original IP.

      When you look up the word sarcasm in the dictionary, this comment should be given as one of the examples xD

    • HeSaidSheSaidReviewSite

      I’m not saying this looks great or Total Recall was good, but the idea that original = better is completely ridiculous.

      • Spanky

        … and then there are the ones where sarcasm just flies right over their head… waaaay over…

    I don’t know. All of the promos so far make me think that this movie may have a good storyteller behind it (José Padilha) but the visuals are just not impressive. This poster looks so plain. Compare it to the original image of Robocop where he is stepping out of his vehicle and his entire mechanical body is seen. That was epic. This is just so meh! I don’t mind the remake but if you look at how much we’ve progressed in sci-fi art and design the look of this movie can’t compare. I hope this movie has a mind blowing story.

    • yea

      That original image would be hard to beat though. It’s so good.

      • Jonboy

        Yeah that mechanical foot is badass…this guy has just a boot. It’s like they’re designing him bad on purpose. Someone making this movie would’ve pointed all this out!

  • GunzOfNavarone

    Got to be honest, I hate everything about it, from the insignia on his chest, to the pvc-glove-hand, to the slide down Iron Man visor, and if he can see out of the whole black visor, what’s the need for the cylon red line? It just seems like a mish-mash of ideas, lacking in any creative thought whatsoever. And lets not get started on the human hand… I’ve never seen anything look more retarded.

    • bombinUSA

      shut up you uncreative idiot. You have absolutely zero idea of what it takes to create an original character. god i hate it when dumbass fanboys without any artistic ability talk about design.

      • Jonboy

        Don’t you think it would’ve been more appealing if there was some thing more than just black all over? The suit conceals everything mechanical so it looks less robotic and more like a move to save money on CGI. The old suit is obviously outdated but it looked the part. It had a don’t mess with me vibe.

        I think the director wanted to show that Robocop is treated like a product where Keaton’s character is like Steve Jobs trying to design him to look appealing. They kept the hand to make Robocop more human and approachable in the movie. (All black contradicts this though) The story seems more important to everyone making this movie, so i think it’ll score more points on that front. The design is not working for people. I mean this poster and the Omnicorp website are so poorly designed you think they were doing it on purpose for some reason.

    Put a couple of little bat ears on it and you’d all be cumming. Being a remake makes it terrible? Maybe if we judged movies on the reviews and the trailers with our own thoughts on it rather than bashing it the second it’s announced, dredd would have done well in theaters..

    • Lex Walker

      Public perception didn’t kill Dredd. Lionsgate releasing primarily in only 3D theaters killed it.

  • Colonel_Neville_Wraithchild

    is the difference that this robocop is a lefty?

  • nadgers

    The original still looks better. this looks like he’s a superhero…. Batman meets Tron

    Where’s the ROBO part? All I see is the COP bit.
